Village Green

Posted on

Hi everyone!  I hope you have been having a great beginning to your summer.

I still have two patterns to “officially” introduce and one of them is Village Green. (Incidentally, Kimberly has them all available to order now at Fat Quarter Shop.)  At 84″ x 102″, it is the largest quilt in my line and is perfect for a bed. It uses up 2 roll-ups/jell-rolls completely. We wouldn’t want to waste a bit of fabric!

This is a great scrappy quilt as well.  The directions call for flowers, constructed out of coordinating solids, to be appliquéd to the center of each block; you could vary flower colors or even fussy cut motifs from your favorite feature fabric and appliqué them on instead… That would be particularly fun for a child’s quilt. Imagine airplanes or cars appliquéd to the center of each square for a little boy’s room… Fun!
The fantastically talented Deborah Norris, of Deborah’s Quilting, did her magic for me on this one as well.  I love her feathers and swirly vines!  (She just started blogging, so if some of you out there visit and leave comments, I’m sure that would surprise her and make her day!)

My friend Lisa tested this pattern for me.  Hop on over to her blog to see pictures of her beautiful garden as well.  Luckily I had a lot of 2-1/2″ scraps leftover from making Veranda quilts.  She appliqued lovely purple blossoms in the center of each block for a different look.

I have some accessories in the works for this line too that will be coming out on blogs this summer, and some giveaways so go along with them, so be sure to check back occassionally.

Hope you are having a wonderful summer – happy sewing!
Amanda

  4. I really like the flower in the center of the blocks. It's so summery – the quilt looks like a wild flower garden in the height of summer – just gorgeous!
